1. I want to thank Aphra_Behn so much for her coverage of the events in Turkey. Thank you, Aphra!
2. The Republican National Convention begins today in Cleveland. If you're interested in reviewing their program of themes and speakers, here you go! It's a pretty awesome slate, let me tell you. And by "awesome," naturally I mean "terrible."
I'm going to be spending a lot of time watching convention coverage, in order that I can keep on top of what's happening and share the most important (or worst) bits here and/or at BNR.
So, I'm not exactly sure what that's going to mean for my writing schedule at Shakesville. I may post less, or I may end up posting lots of short items: I'm honestly not sure how it's going to go, which will largely depend on what actually happens at the convention.
I will do my best, and I'll hope you're all ready to roll with me through the next couple of wacky days!
